Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze were shown for the first time today during Nintendo's E3 webcast. All three games are in development for the Wii U.

Super Mario 3D World will have Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad as playable characters. A new power-up transforms Mario into Cat Mario and lets him climb walls and scratch enemies. The game is currently planned for a December release.

Coming in Spring 2014, Mario Kart 8 features courses that let you drive on walls or upside-down with the new anti-gravity karts. Gliding, underwater driving, and motorcycles return from previous games in the series.

Retro Studios, the creators of Donkey Kong Country Returns, will bring DK back again in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. This time, Dixie Kong teams up with Donkey and Diddy. Tropical Freeze is set for release in November.
